For anyone that either never heard of or ever worked “virtually” before Covid-19, I’m almost certain that you have after the pandemic. The development of “cloud computing” or software has taken place over the last 15 years where it is now mainstream. Instead of software that’s accessible on your desktop or through a network, cloud software is accessible through the internet or the “cloud”. But to be truly successful, cloud software needed higher bandwidth through either local area networks or WiFi. Technologies have taken care of this issue, where cloud software can not only be used seamlessly through a WiFi connection but where there is data protection (VPN) that also secures the use of such data. The beauty of cloud software, besides being able to work from anywhere (which I take full advantage of); is that cloud software is accessible by multiple users, even at the same time. This allows for real-time work to be done in a collaborative manner, through a Zoom or Webex video conference or if necessary, in person. And instead of producing a report, schedule document of something, which may be outdated, real-time links or live feeds can be worked with using the most current and accurate information.
